Anthropology students from Western Washington University haver determined that people lived at a site on Chuckanut Bay at the site of the present Woodstock Farm as long as 2,500 years ago. The discovery was made from finely ground bits of shells near the shore. They believe that carbon dating shows people processed shellfish at these sites in what in America are ancient times. Students also found evidence of temporary fishing camp and more permanent settlements.
There will be a discussion of the archaeological dig Friday at an event at Woodstock Farm from 5 – 8 pm.
